Live Opera at the Panama Canal. The New York Metropolitan Opera (Met) will be back in Panama, through live broadcasts of the 2016-2017 season, which will be shown in the theater of the Miraflores Visitor Center at the Panama Canal.
The screenings will have the added value of being broadcast live and in High Definition. Each performance will include tales of the history of this branch of art and interviews with artists who star in each opera.
During the month of October, two operas will be screened live from New York. The first will take place on Saturday, October 8 at 11 a.m. This is the opera “Tristan and Isolde”, a three act opera, based mainly on the romance of Godfrey of Strasbourg. It was composed by Richard Wagner and conducted by Simon Rattle.
Later, on Saturday, October 22 at 11:55 a.m., the opera Don Giovanni will be transmitted live. This adaptation by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart retells the Don Juan myth from a point of view that is neither tragic nor entirely comic, but rather lighthearted. Don Giovanni will be directed by Fabio Luisi and Placido Domingo.
Screenings will continue with “L’Amour de Loin”, “Nabucco”, “Romeo and Juliette”, “La Traviata”, “Rusalka”, “Indomeneo” and “Eugene Oneginn” on Saturday, April 22 before finishing on Saturday, March 13 with “Der Rosenkavalier”.
These presentations will cost $35 general admission, $25 for members of the ACP, $10 for children under 12 and $15 for students. Tickets are on sale in Coronado Golf Development, at the offices of Rivera, Bolivar and Castañedas (General Bank tower in Marbella, ninth floor). For more information call 209-5900 or 366-6200.
